Don’t let the name of this smoke throw you off. It looks complicated and unreadable but let us assure you, this is from the same company that’s one of the fastest selling cigar brands on the market today, Diesel. The Diesel d.10th was created by the one and only AJ Fernandez, who is known for the Man O’ War, Rocky Patel’s Fusion, Man O’ War Ruination and ITC 10th Anniversary, among other stellar sticks. Handcrafted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Diesel, each leaf was hand selected and inspected including the stunning and luscious Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper which secures a zesty Nicaraguan Habano binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers. This powerful smoke has lots of flavors with notes of black pepper up front followed by hints of coffee, earth, dark chocolate, and a long spicy-sweet finish. Our panel recommended it with a bourbon.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
